“Hey, can you fix my kid?!”
Parents across the board struggle to understand why their kid’s behavior and emotional responses are so out of control. Whether you have a tantrum throwing toddler or an angry, stressed out teenager on your hands, the answer follows the same line of thought. Their brains are still developing and they are learning how to regulate or not regulate their emotions.
So who is teaching them this skill of managing emotions?
In this episode, Brenda speaks to parents on the power of our own emotional regulation and the domino effect it can have on our children. Though it may be difficult at first to learn self regulation and understand our triggers, the transformation in our homes and in our hearts will be a sweet harvest.
